John Morgan Kimock’s “JMMY” Shares New Music Video For “Telephone” [Premiere]

first_imgWhen we last spoke to John Morgan Kimock, the drummer was gearing up to debut his exciting new project JMMY. Though Kimock is part of a number of bands, including that of Mike Gordon and K I M O C K, a project with his father Steve Kimock, JMMY is something totally unique. “JMMY is like an incubator for me to re-establish some of my core musicality that I feel like I didn’t get to work on as much as I would have liked to in the past.”After sharing the debut JMMY track “Low Lands” earlier this year, the collaboration between Kimock and Alex Luquet is pushing forward with a brand new music video. Titled “Telephone,” the new song and video takes a look at our generation’s obsession with phones. “The video came about with my bud Jason Gallagher just hearing the track, and putting it together with a library of telephone related footage that he had been collecting. He has a good eye for these types of audio/visual connections,” said Kimock.“I sort of see hints of the whole telephone addiction in there, which is starting to bubble up as an actual thing in today’s society.”We’re excited to premiere the new video! Produced by Todd Shied and directed by Jason Gallagher, watch “Telephone” streaming below.Kimock is keeping busy throughout the remainder of 2016, playing shows with all of his projects at different times. JMMY kicks off a run of shows throughout the Northeast this week, and the band will be joined by Justin Mazer (American Babies) for every show of the run! The drummer will also be touring with Mike Gordon and K I M O C K throughout October and November. Check out the full tour schedule below!JMMY DatesOctober 5 – Bishops Lounge Northampton MA w.

‘I feel like a burden sometimes’: Dying woman urges public to say no to euthanasia

first_imgRadio NZ News 7 September 2020Family First Comment: Thank you Vicki for your bravery and your conviction!“Vicki’s greatest fear is that people will feel pressured to end their lives earlier than they need to. “The coercion thing is one of biggest concerns for me about this bill, people say it wouldn’t happen – well we already have an elderly abuse problem in this country. So I already know what I feel like, like my family don’t make me feel like a burden, but I also feel like a burden sometimes and I’m not getting that pressure.”Protect.org.nzA woman dying of cancer is urging New Zealanders to ‘pull the plug’ on the proposed euthanasia law, saying people could be coerced into an early death.The public will be asked to vote yes or no to the End of Life Choice Act, in a referendum on election day.The Act would allow terminally ill people who are given six months or less to live and who are experiencing unbearable suffering, the option of medically assisted dying.Vicki Walsh, who is now 53, was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme in June 2011.The aggressive brain cancer is nicknamed ‘The Terminator’ and those who have it typically die within 14 months of diagnosis.But nine years later, Vicki is still around, living near Palmerston North with her husband and two adult children.She has been taking the drug Avastin – which has cost her $24,000 – and the mass in her brain has halved.“I was always told there was nothing more that could be done,” she said. “So in eight years, nine years, things have changed, so I got another surgery, I got radiation and now we’re having this drug that we’re paying for.”But there was a moment after her diagnosis where she felt helpless and depressed.She said she watched people, who were battling the same illness overseas, choose euthanasia and felt she should take her own life.“I actually felt kind of gutless, I was looking at my husband and we were trying to keep life normal and I had a bit of a stroke and it ended up really, really big and I just felt that this is it for me,” she said.“It had been several weeks, it wasn’t just an overnight thing, and I just thought, if this is how it’s going to be, I don’t want to live like this anymore.”But Vicki changed her mind in the last moment.Had she gone through with it, she said she would have missed out on watching her grandchildren grow up.“If you’d asked me if I want to live like I am now, I would have viewed my life 15 years ago as not having much of a quality of life now” she said. “I love my life, you know, I love my life.”Vicki said she didn’t want to see people suffer, but felt the End of Life Choice Act was not watertight.READ MORE: https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/checkpoint/audio/2018762966/i-feel-like-a-burden-sometimes-dying-woman-urges-public-to-say-no-to-euthanasialast_img read more

SBC secures membership of American Gaming Association

first_img SBC’s Barcelona Summit to become digital-only event May 29, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Submit Related Articles SBC Summit Barcelona – Digital 2020 announces free ticket initiative July 21, 2020 Sports Betting Community (SBC) has shown its commitment to the growing US betting industry by securing membership to the American Gaming Association (AGA).SBC organizes some of the biggest sports betting trade events in Europe and the United States via its event brand SBC Events.com. SBC also manages a network of betting and gaming industry news portals including SBCAmericas.com, an online news and analysis resource dedicated to the developing sports betting industries in North and South Americas.Stacy Papadopoulos of the AGA commented: “We are pleased to welcome SBC to the AGA as an ally member. With the possibility of legal, regulated sports betting across the country, this is an exciting time for the U.S. gaming industry. As the sports betting sector grows, being able to discuss and share best practices with an industry leader like SBC benefits the organization and our broader membership.”SBC’s CEO & Founder Rasmus Sojmark added: “Our involvement in the US pre-dates the repeal of PASPA, but there is no doubt that the SCOTUS decision has lit the boosters for sports betting in the US.“There’s no doubt that the AGA’s support for sports betting at a key point of the political debate helped open the door for the sector so we have no hesitation in supporting them through our membership.”SBC joins the AGA at a time when the gaming industry is growing both in size and popularity. The May 2018 Supreme Court ruling overturning the federal ban on sports betting was a landmark policy achievement for the industry. Revenue grew in twenty states with commercial casinos in 2017 and the commercial gaming industry as a whole brought  in $40.3 billion in gaming revenue, while tribal casinos tallied $32.4 billion in total gaming revenue.
